            This Thanksgiving holiday offers us the opportunity to reframe our thoughts and focus on the many good things we have to be grateful for. As role models, we should set the positive example for our youth to remember to be appreciative and express thanks in our lives. When you reflect on all the positives in our lives, it seems to set things right. It is not time consuming. It is free. It is available to us all. It is liberating!

“Never let the things you want make you forget the things that you have!”

            May you all be blessed in feeling truly thankful for living in Garden County and working together to provide the best educational opportunities for our youth possible! I am extremely grateful to all who support our cause, bless you! Happy ‘Thanks’giving to you all and may you practice gratitude with intention.


Gratitude is the healthiest of all human emotions.

The more you express gratitude for what you have,

the more likely you have even more to express gratitude for what you have!”
